  • We introduce Bee+, a 95-mg four-winged microrobot with improved controllability and open-loop-response characteristics with respect to those exhibited by state-of-the-art two-winged microrobots with the same size and similar weight (i.e., the 75-mg Harvard RoboBee). The key innovation that made possible the development of Bee+ is the introduction of an extremely light (28-mg) pair of twinned unimorph actuators, which enabled the design of a new microrobotic mechanism that flaps four wings… CONTINUE READING
